“You can’t catch me, You’re much too slow! I like to run wherever I go”...

Can YOU catch that slippery little biscuit, the Gingerbread Man?

You’ll need a big bowl of porridge first to keep your energy up. Don’t worry if you haven’t had yours this morning, Granny Grinpickle’s Magic Porridge Pot has made enough for everyone!!

These two tasty tales which you know so well are served with unexpected spices and quirky flavours, along with Widdershins’ trademark ingredients of puppets, pop-up sets and original music.

Perfect fare for fussy foodies and discerning diners. Bon Appetit!


Suitable for all dietary requirements aged 3+.
